Bakers And Me !!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

The family story goes something like this: My opera loving Zeide Benjamin Solomon courted my beautiful smart Bubbe Rebecca Wolf with, among other things, baking – yes he was working as a baker and supposedly made a heart shape large cookie to win over his lady love. It worked because they were married – had many children and us, their grandchildren – the most adorable couple ever, who lived as husband and wife for 70 +years. How honored and proud they would be that my gentile husband legally took our family Sir name of Solomon and had our children do the same [middle name of one of our twins Benjamin]. Now you ask,  do I bake – well a bit yes and my feminist hubby a REAL wiz in that department. This piece however is not about pastries or cakes and such but instead about a couple, whose last name is Baker – two REALLY great parents, grandparents, friends and more!

In a few previous posts my dear goddess gal pal Anna B. was referenced and then her granddaughters – my mini goddess darlings, Danaya and Javonna. More REAL family then friends at this point – the entire Baker family rallying and protecting myself, my husband,  babies and even sweet Lab, Princess Java Argus from those pest miscreants and all others, no matter the time or energy required. Each and every day – from our homes or even when either of us REALLY travel – my darling Anna and I speak around 5 a.m. – not joking – my sweet lady went so far as to be sure when she was last in Italy on holiday that her schedule allowed for that daily occurrence. Now the fact that my ringtone on her iphone is T-Pain/Wiz/Lily Allen 5’oclock in the morning [video]  – not sure how cute I think this is – no it is very adorable and a REAL sign of our mutual affection. By the way – if you are thinking 5 is a bit early – my family wakes daily at 4:30 a.m. – no miscreant Farmville, SongPop game playing slackers at our homes. Anyway – back to Bakers and moi – these two wonderful people never let me down – as the Kronberger family I write about so often has done for 35 years, the Bakers for over 5 years have as well … they all are REAL friends – extended REAL family that are there for us no matter the difficulty or nature of the problems involved. Ours is a tell everything – 100% truth at all times friendship  and so the good, the bad and the ugly never an issue of shame. Unlike those of self proclaimed evil doer group mentality and now we are told self denoted insanity club [yes – someone shared that these idiots actually write that about themselves on Facebook – I know – OMG!], our friendship is REAL and pure – not based on subterfuge nor determination to defeat others. Now do not get me wrong – these friends are at the ready to thwart all enemies of mine – no matter the consequences – both Anna and Jim are the people you know REALLY have your back and as such we share ALL with them about those we need protection from and all those who lie and cheat and steal from us and others … in other words, this is a REAL bonding and not just a made up recently formed on account of  we have a common jealousy angst grouping [I know more obvious references to losers]. You see I must contrast with the faux friendships miscreants profess – for by doing that, you my dear readers can see the specificity of what bogus lives produce compared to my and my husband’s genuine ones. My Anna B. and her husband, my James B. are both of unchallenged character – REALLY special, very learned and sophisticated – REALLY well traveled and quite bookish as well. A pure joy in our life to be in their company – both my husband and I gladdened by their daily presence. Lucky, lucky, lucky babies are mine that these two people are REAL Auntie and Uncle to them.

“Sister”, confidant, guidance counselor, teacher, playmate, et al. is how I describe my sweet Anna B. – we are 100% type of friends – no break in continuity despite any differences or disagreements. As my blog posts Real friends I Have Known And Loved!!! [18 July 2012] and Goddess Crew™  !!! [26 August 2012] detailed. She, like a lot of my REAL friends know it all and love all of me – as I do them. With Anna it is the every day aspect that makes our relationship so special … each morning and every evening at least a few minutes of chat time and often in between as well. We listen, we argue, we comfort and complain but we never end a talk without an I love you adieu. Poor Anna has gone nearly mad discussing the horrid evil miscreants with me; In fact, it was she who came to fetch me from Court when the daughter of devil husband’s ex-wife saw my beautiful, well coiffed and couture pregnant self – only to later that day post lie filled slander Facebook item claiming otherwise … first issue of soon to be filed lawsuit and here is the best part – the idiot ex-wife used a UK website item and so we are suing her there as well – important because British law much more favorable [more of her $$$ for me] against slander and defamation. Oh yes, almost forgot – I spend a lot of time in Great Britain and one of my REAL Jewish gal pal lawyers is a Barrister there – needless to say, she and I are REALLY going to enjoy that day in Court. Now back to darling bestie Anna B. – after coming to fetch me at that bogus child support hearing where ex-wife wanted money for a dead child and one who lied about being full time college student, we all, hubby included, had lunch [by the way, NOT at a burger joint]. Anna asked why ex-wife was not there – I said she was and when I described what she looked like my kind never gossipy Anna innocently said she thought that person was Courthouse cleaning woman. Oh no, I insisted – I know the cleaning lady, liked that fine hardworking woman and felt badly that anyone would compare my husband’s ex to her. It is sad because for REAL women like Anna B. and myself [who by the way has REALLY worthwhile children & grandchildren + wears REALLY great shoes] there has NEVER been a need to demean nor insult other women … we two most resent that the miscreants have forced a scenario where our verbiage is so harsh – not to fret wise Anna assures me, G-d will punish them and we shall live happily for many, many years – plus a little lawsuit money hubby/I reap and possible jail time for various acts now being investigated surely will help G-d teach the miscreants well deserved lessons. The REAL fact is despite the efforts to thwart evil types – Anna B. and I REALLY know how to live … fine dining, museums, plays and such a constant shared must do on our list.

Each year on Anna’s birthday we do a women thing – yes some event honoring, relating to and/or about women … one year is was The Cleopatra Exhibit, another Diana Princess Of Wales Exhibit and so on  – each a full day begun with a gourmet breakfast and followed by a grand elegant lunch or dinner at an 5 star restaurant – of course these annual events always includes my gifts from that year’s chosen venue and so my Anna has Cleopatra items, Diana collectibles and more. Because reading and books a great part of both our lives – every birthday includes those as well. Rituals are important – a main stay of REAL relationships – no pretend we are buddies cheap restaurant get together for goddess Anna B. and me – never that – only fine dining and the best cuisine will do for our REAL shared celebrations. Equally wonderful are the shared my and her home soirees – my dear friend is an excellent hostess and her tables REAL masterpieces … glassware, china, linens par excellence for the Baker’s is rule not exception. Then there are the ad hoc coffees and such – a early morning garden fete, a quick bookstore venture that includes a warm beverage and snack after we purview the shelves. I can not forget to mention the holidays get together celebrations … my Jewish and their Christian – especially the Xmas I played Mrs. Claus arriving at 6 a.m. laden with gifts at the Bakers home to surprise then 4 year old Princess Danaya. I love that my Anna has REALLY great taste … in clothes, jewelry, food, furniture and of course, friends [why there is me is obvious – surely all agree – yes?]. We share the appreciation of the REALLY finer things in life – pouring over Architectural Digest, W, Town & Country with page markers in hand – at the ready to make sure to buy/to do lists complete. No it is certainly not that these expensive and object loving issues are the total sum by far of this friendship – so much more to our bond but still it is a great and REAL pleasure to have such a REALLY classy and connoisseur of finer things in life gal pal. Erudite Anna B. is a Pride & Prejudice devotee – so much so that she REALLY wore out more than one DVD of that book’s film version and of course, needless to say the current PBS Downton Abbey is her must see [yes has that series DVD as well] – my classy lady friend loves all the classics and we who love her tease that her REAL place is among the aristocratic times of Edith Wharton and such. Interesting is the fact that Anna B. also loves a bit of more eccentric innovative art and definitely creative non classical jewelry items … myself and our other Goddess Crew™ members are always saying this or that is sooo Anna. My sweet friend adores shopping – I not so much and so hubby and I often joke that Anna B. will have to be our new personal shopper [actually not really joking as she has very good taste and we trust her with all things]. A very cute story is about as we often do – Anna and I were at a Barnes & Noble bookstore and after buying books/magazines we sat down for a coffee – I thought I was going into labor, called my OB, hubby and then throw my car keys to her – as we left with myself holding Anna’s arm, my darling gal pal stopped en route to door to check out the the gift table – see shopping pro [by the way, that was a false alarm – no babies that night].

On more serious matters – Anna B. and I have gone through and supported one another during illnesses, my fertility treatments/pregnancy, legal matters, family highs and lows, my law school studies, etc.  – most of my doctors and attorneys – rest of “team” knows my Anna. When I say support – it means being present – REALLY there for ALL tasks required … driving to and fro, feeding, dressing, coiffing and more. This woman has been my companion at OB exams, attorneys meetings, Court visits, school tasks and other events – willing and able to do it all for me, as I am for her. Her latest title of Nonna to my babies seems odd as we are truly like sisters but she volunteered [ok I insisted] for that important role as my husband and I sadly have both our mothers no longer living. My children will thank me for choosing a REALLY special lady like Anna B., to love and guide them along with those others my husband and I have “adopted” – making a REAL family for our precious children. Let me be clear – as with all those I REALLY respect in my life and am REALLY close to – Anna does not believe in being my YES person – no ass kissing here but just REAL 100% honest commitment  to each other. Can not ever imagine my life without Anna B., – there are certainly disagreements but NEVER a break in our friendship – like so many REALLY good people in my life – she knows EVERYTHING and loves me completely. See why I keep writing that I am REALLY the luckiest woman in the world.

Now we MUST chat about the other half of this amazing and REALLY special couple – James V. – my and my husband’s friend and definitely confidant and so much more. This smart educated and well read man gives and gives and gives of himself – to family, friends like us and The Boy Scouts Of America. Yes, my Jim B., is a prominent presence in the Boy Scout organization – years of devoted service to help guide boys – some who I have been privileged to meet that are now grown men who still rely on Jim for console and more. Jim and I and my husband, C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon spend a great deal of time together … because of soon to be filed lawsuits against the miscreants my husband was thrilled that our friend Jim B., would drive me to meetings, appointments, errands and more – as I stated in another blog post, this strong fellow is shall we say, quite capable of protecting me. You see my husband fears for my safety on account of criminal vandalism to our old home, internet threats and bogus social media references to us -by the often referred to miscreants –  my husband and others feel now that miscreants are finally being legally brought to task they might be foolish enough to retaliate [as they did before]. So it is that my buddy Jim B., and I spend a great deal of time together – in the car and elsewhere … in fact most of my doctors, lawyers, hairdressers and others have come to know him as they do his beautiful wife Anna B.. I love being in the car with Jim – we discuss weighty issues, we confide, laugh  – Jim brings me a candy or two so I can be uncharacteristically naughty by not being my usual organic fruit and veggie consuming self. Jim accompanied my husband and I to Court the day we went before the judge in January 2012 to LEGALLY have our name changed/hubby and babies take my last Sir name of Solomon. It will be American Polish Jim B., who travels to Poland next year with my genealogy husband in order for Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon to finish his book research [yes – most probably by private plane. FYI: for self proclaimed “bus” driving miscreants who are reading this]. By the way, maybe that special Harley will be a some time soon gift to show our appreciation [sharing my REAL book and movie royalties] to motorcycle loving Jim B. because not everything in our friendship is serious – lots of fun included too. I can not find the words – and we all know I can always find words – to fully explain the comfort having Jim B. in my life has brought to me. I feel safe with this dear friend and know he will always do his best to help me in anyway possible. Men like this are rare and I have been blessed with more than one –  an embarrassment of riches for me by having Jim B. as well as other fine gentleman to support and care for me. Like the amazing REAL family/our friends the Kronbergers, the Bakers come when called – no matter what the situation nor the time to our aid. These and other REAL friends are definitely 24/7 types – no bogus newly established one issue get together for us – only REAL and true life long companions with these folks. We are so looking forward – as with others I write about – to great adventures and sharing our blessings … hubby and I NEVER leave REALLY worthwhile people behind – NEVER. Besides we are thrilled to have the company of these simply decent, good, REALLY faith based people – at nightly dinner grace my husband and I thank G-d for so much and that includes by name our REAL friends and REAL family – along with each other and our REAL children and our Lab, Princess Java Argus – our REAL life blessings!

P.S. Must tell you my darling readers/followers that Anna and I first bonded when she drove/accompanied me to my brilliant plastic surgeon and dear friend Richard Glunk’s office for my facial Thermage treatment four years ago – never taking drugs, the small post op medication for pain rendered me incapable of grown up conversation … darling Anna brought me home, placed me in bed & telephoned hubby. Next day flowers arrived at Anna’s – with a big Thank You note from me and so began this never ending REAL friendship. Next “fix up” will be we two together [stay tune – more in my 2013 memoir Heiress Mommy .. A Modern Super Woman Life!].

Everybody Loves A REALLY Big Bird – Then Why Does Mitt Romney Want to Pink Slip PBS?

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

I understand Big Bird’s feathers were a bit ruffled on account of Mitt Romney’s Presidential debate reference last week – too bad – don’t be sad – just get glad you are so damn important in 2012. It is not just about you Bird but all those U.S. jobs that your kind generates that Romney and company want to eliminate because, well I guess, we taxpayers just can’t afford it anymore …what?

Look I get it … the extremist right wing can not tolerate a neighborhood like Sesame Street any longer. It is quite understandable because after all we have two obviously gay guys, Bert and Ernie living together – come on, those single twin beds are not REALLY fooling anyone, we have that homeless begging pest Oscar Grouch, unhealthy eating fat Cookie Monster, a Hispanic neighbor lady, African American men and then the damn Big Bird [who the hell knows what gender that thing is] plus a sundry of other very non-standard not REAL American types.

It makes perfect sense to me that the GOP wants to cut PBS funding and along with it that intelligentsia,  bookish NPR. Because we, the American people, can no longer support the obvious left wing brain washing that these venues are producing with all that tax payer money – STOP the madness now – kill the f***king bird!

Of course we also have to stop funding Head Start, Planned Parenthood, Pell Grants, Public Libraries, U.S. Post Office, Public Transportation and so many more of those supportive programs who are determined to help educate, make healthy and keep mainstreamed most citizens in our society because before you know it everyone will want a part of the American dream. It is just that simple – if you do not have a trust fund for private school nor a car to get you to and from book stores and money for concierge physicians – then why the hell do you think you are entitled to those things anyway? Get real America – the GOP says get off your ass now – get two or three minimum wage jobs and save damn you – then you too can be REALLY successful and finally be REAL Americans.

Now Tereza, what you are saying – that is cute rhetoric you write here but its just hyperbole – that is not REALLY what GOP wants for our great nation. Oh no – isn’t it I ask you? Maybe not cognitively but oh baby this scenario I describe is what will be the result if these extremist Republicans rule the day – I personally cannot explain because it is just too crazy an idea that anyone of any political party would want to diminish our nation to such an extent – why, why, why is the perplexing and truly unanswerable thoughts in my head concerning their plan. The answer must be fear – fear of an educated electorate and I suppose a real philosophy that only private ventures – money making corporations are the way for REAL  American success. Conservatives seem to have an irrational ,visceral hatred of all public sector venues … be it the arts, science or education – it seems antithetical to me that one can rally round our U.S.A. flag and yet be so against attempts to inform the whole American society via public broadcasting – that being the REAL inclusive America.

Now I truly believe the intelligent members of current GOP, like their more normal and logical precursors – as the type my very Liberal parents had as friends and admired and as some of my best friends who are Republican can be described as being – these folks are not anti PBS/NPR, etc.. What I do believe is present day GOP is catering – throwing so called “red meat” topics and ideas out to their lesser members – the unwashed who see things like intellectualism to be a threat and somehow anti-American. Shameful – would the great Republican U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt had allowed right wing evangelical extremists to stop his national park efforts – certainly not. Would hero General U.S. President Eisenhower allowed his fellow Republicans to force him to war monger against the Communist post WWII threat – no way – in fact he lectured against the military complex having too much power in our country. So why then are the leaders in today’s Republican party allowing themselves to be the so called Tea Party bitches – defunding things like Big Bird for G-d’s sake? Why indeed we must ask – the first most blatant answer is they want the masses [who are so often real asses] to elect them and the smart ones are quite willing to stoop to the ignorant, hateful, narrow minded level to do just that – get that base to the polls with promises of ending all perceived progressive, minority helping, liberal idea based government sponsored programs – even if these very folks are the ones who would most benefit from those exact plans. Listen – I sure as hell do not need free access for my children … blessed to be able to afford private educations, etc. but I and my wise husband are not stupid enough to think our opportunity to give our children an elite education will insulate us or them from a diminished populace. My babies are Au pair privileged – an educated woman who like myself and their Father guides them and exposes them to literature, the arts and more. I want all American children to have similar advantages – maybe not a well paid Au pair or governess or private school educations but still the very best public tax payer funding can offer. This desire is not totally nor singularly altruistic and certainly not bleeding heart Liberal on my and my husband’s part – while yes we both feel it is the moral thing to do, it is also because our privileged children must and will live in a nation with others less so and we want those others to be well  educated and productive as well – for our desire is that we and our children benefit from the greater good and to do that we do not mind – no we actually want to contribute to that goal via our tax dollars, as well as charitable contributions. No American citizen should have to depend on the largess of those of us able to be charitable – as wonderful and as beneficial as organization funded through charitable contribution are, the real fair and really equal set up must be a taxed based across the board community structure that our wise Founders envisioned in this grand scheme. Public education was a founding American principal and of course modernity means that must be expanded to more complete venues involving health care, higher education, arts, et al.. When did the GOP decide to break away from the lifting all boats theory that this great nation was based on for so long – are we not our brothers and sisters keepers any longer? Ask yourself – what good it does any of us to not have PBS, Sesame Street and such – those things that some among us have as their only free available entertainment and educational viewing opportunities. I am sad – heart broken that Big Bird is on the chopping block – yes even though I allow no one under three, except our Labrador, to ever watch TV.

Admittedly, I am a devoted lifelong Democrat – so surely I would only want you to vote for Democrat candidates no matter the issues but this is a do or die election because I REALLY believe not only is the big yellow bird’s life on the line if Romney and other like minded Republicans win in November 2012 but all our very existences. So PLEASE be a REALLY good neighbor & friend – sing it out loud like Telly & Ben Stiller did on Sesame Street – elect Obama for a 2nd term and help him help us by voting straight Democrat this year – ALL the birds will be tweeting a lot happier if you do – even our Republican kind I assure you!!!

P.S. In my 2013 memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! there will be a REAL explanation of how both PBS and NPR helped shape me – gave me hope & comfort during some very difficult times – so you see these things REALLY do matter!!!

The Tereza Effect™ !!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Definitely one of my most OMG blog post to date – read carefully my darling readers/followers because this is REALLY interesting and, as they say, one for the record. You see for some time now – quite flattering in fact – hubby dear and others in my life have suggested that in many good and positive ways I seem to effect people. I like to think and have been told repeatedly that my faith based life – ability to REALLY rally against odds and my successes have led others to do better and persevere. If my life can ameliorate others than my legacy is complete. All good stuff – right? I agree and as I have mentioned in other blog post, along with wanting to tell my REAL life story, this is one reason I even agreed to a memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! being published end 2013. I know you all see it coming – here it is – the dam fool miscreants I so often must reference have taken to attempts at being Tereza like – yep – I have had “Internet ninja” keep track and there are Facebook postings and photos sadly posturing as if these characters had REALLY worth while lives. So like with other issues – my “team” decided we MUST trademark The Tereza Effect™ and so it is as of 24 September 2012 [in U.S., EU & Canada] my husband and I, along with the 29 others, now own  [and yes miscreants – we WILL REALLY vigorously defend] that trademark. As with so much in my life – as so many noted about me – this means I managed to turn lemons into (sweet gourmet) lemonade again. Betting you readers want the details – as is always the case, I will do my best considering ongoing litigation/lawsuit against miscreants and law enforcement investigation restriction plus my book contract obligations. It is quite easy to decorticate the facade of those so full of pretense and obfuscation of their own misdeeds – if each of you were privy to all sent to myself, my husband and advisers – you too could easily analysis and surely agree with that which I detail here.

First, as someone studying law and on account of the constant hanging out with many of my own attorneys, I feel compelled to always fully disclose REAL facts and simply because, unlike the loser miscreants, I have a hold on reality – I will readily admit that these middle of the middle of the very middle folks have ok lives, although nothing I would want to claim as my own. They have jobs – all right, a kid or two might have McDonald’s as their only resume entry but what the hell – they work. Some even have four year college degrees [no Ivy League – a lot of community colleges in fact, but they did actually go to college – at least to some extent], they have what are for people like them probably relatively nice homes – they do budget trips [nothing grand mind you but still gets them out of the born & die same place syndrome for a week or two]. There seems to be a few – very limited – social activities … nothing special nor with any notable attendees and even though none will ever effect society, there are at least some one or two time “charity” efforts, although NEVER anything like the venues my husband and myself attend regularly – the many REAL fund raising and political galas nor any of the REAL political, social and community events myself and my husband participate in routinely. But it sounds a decent enough lifestyle, doesn’t it? Normally I and my husband would say bravo good people – best you can do and that is just fine but trust me when I write that these particular typical Americans are not to be championed. I believe most of you have read my posts that are very specific on these types and yes, unlike them or those you know similar, I back up ALL I write with REAL facts – even going so far as to have my law professors and legal team/friends review much prior to posting.

Yes mine is a REALLY blessed life – certainly, like most and maybe more than some – not without trouble, sorrow or strife. I have written extensively that my Jewish faith, amazing REAL family and friends and my own determination makes me possibly the happiest woman in the world – at least that is how I see myself. But it is a life where hard work and multi tasking is the norm – an eclectic life to be sure that includes scholarly pursuits, politics, REAL travel, charitable efforts, family responsibility, instrument playing, sports, exercise, etc., etc., etc.. Not easy to mimic if one is honest – I live it and yet when seeing this list am exhausted myself;  I am NOT bragging but being 100% truthful that as my parents wished/showed by example – mine is a REALLY busy and very full rich life and therefore a life REALLY well lived. I am complimented when hubby, family, friends and colleagues suggest I am a super woman of some kind … hubby even designed one with a big “T” on head gear as my 1st Facebook timeline photo last month. I do not believe in false modesty – just as offensive as bragging but there are many like myself who attempt to “do it all”. The REAL issue here is that pretense like that which The Miscreants™ [trademarked 27 August 2012] demonstrate is just that – a faux attempt to establish themselves as worthwhile beings. True not everyone can have a REALLY exciting life nor does everyone want the extreme highs – amazing and exciting opportunities I have been blessed with but it is exactly the lesser among us that belie their protest about their portrayed happiness that indeed renders them dangerously delusional. In other words, it is these types so hell bent on mimicking those of us blessed with REALLY worthwhile existences [of varied styles] who are the usurpers and drains on society. Those most self satisfied are those least able to grow – their only means of ego satisfaction is false self aggrandizing or lie filled demeaning of those REALLY happy and achieved.

There is nothing in the world more shameful than establishing one’s self on lies and fables.                                                                     —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

… sadly The Miscreants™ we deal with and others are guilty and prone toward establishing their worth on fables – no more better example than that which I detailed in a previous blog post concerning my husband’s ex wife of nearly 20 years – this high school graduate [which she admitted as education level in Court under oath] for years claimed both a Bachelor & Master Degree – even going so far as to include that on her daughter’s lied filled college application. Even more egregious, in my opinion, is when these parents allowed their youngster to believe they are so talented as to have a chance for careers in college football or as a REAL writer – while both a minimal possibility, never an only REAL option that should be promoted – indeed this has been the case with our troublesome pests offspring [to say the least, the results have been less than impressive  – by anyone’s definition]. As far as the supposed relationships – much ballyhooed “friendships’ between these individuals, that too  is a joke – for all have said REALLY terrible things about one another … the REAL truth is that both myself and my husband have heard harsh and quite mean gossip [saying another of the women were tramps, the others marriage not good, their was no real faith in the others life, etc.] and even hateful comments [for instance when I called one of these evil people to tell him that another’s daughter had been killed in a June 2010 car accident, he suggested she & her other 2 children should have been also – I know OMG] from each of the now reunited  “family” contacts – as far as the non relative couple, my husband assures me the woman he calls THE REAL Devil’s Daughter™ [yes, trademarked by us 27 August 2012 + THE Devil’s Daughter™] spewed insults about them for many years. So you see all is DEFINITELY not REAL in these miscreant’s life and I have somehow effected them so deeply as to inspire these insincere new-found communal relationships – such power hubby and I have to cause a forging of previous enemies. Now do not misunderstand – I am not being a snob – there are many REALLY good and worthwhile individuals who live simply and give much to this world. I have even suggested to my husband, friends and colleagues that the miscreants we deal with have in their own small minded way been minimally productive [by the way, most in my life think I am being far too generous with that analysis]. The problem is that like far too many THE Evil Doers Club™ [yes again, we trademarked that too, 27 August 2012, along with THE REAL Evil Doers Club™] types are not being genuine and I seem to be the provocation as of late for their angst and activity toward proving worth and value for themselves. Many have joked – especially my erudite husband who knew these troublesome bottom dwellers all his life, that at the very least I can be comforted that I inspire them to dress somewhat better, help the hairdressing industry by having the women actually do something professionally with their hair [except his ex wife who obviously still does what he describes as henna home rinsing], exercise a bit, pretend to read [one liked Wall Street Journal on her Facebook page according to a friend of mine – seriously doubt scrap booking & Bubble Witch game playing addict chick ever read WSJ but whatever – maybe she will see article about moi next year there], actually be proud of their limited travel outside their hometown life, et al. – see I am REALLY making them better people all the way around. Of course also REALLY true – as my husband reminded me concerning my obvious considerable effect on these sad creatures is the idiom attributed to Jonathan Swift, “you can not make a silk purse from a sow’s ear“. The base sadness here is that if  like these miscreant types,  you only have a very few things to be overly boastful of and the need to show off the now and again adventures or minimal achievements, you are NOT REAL nor genuine nor worthy of praise – my life is abundantly exciting – maybe too much at times but all REAL.

Shall we get into even more pathological issues here ? – it is the OMG stuff my friends: After I wrote a few blog posts that admittedly were in small ways directed toward the miscreants but others not at all about them, these idiots decided to begin piece by piece proof of each and every delineated reference they assumed were about them. A bit scary in that they began even using my words – REALLY for instance and even the word blessed, as I so often do – additionally one of the husbands posted a first time compliment to his wife as a weak/bogus mimic of the many my erudite and REALLY in love with me husband does so often. Now I know they say imitation is a compliment but not with these types – it became just very surreal and quite laughable [my friends were hysterical]. Even G-d was not left out of their attempt to be like me … one posted a very anti-Semitic prayer [my Priest friend agreed] in an effort to show, I can only presume, that she did indeed reference such things – only after I suggested these miscreants have no REAL faith. Whenever I wrote concerning lack of something in their little world or an abundance in my own, these sad creatures posted a singular response of sorts … for instance, having mentioned my many nieces, nephews – biologically and assumed through friendships – they struggled to find a “family” picture for their Facebook page. What these types miss is it has to be REAL – natural – regular occurrence as it is in my life for such happenings to be REALLY poignant. Then there was their attempt to show they REALLY did have friends – not exactly true in line or comparable to my own huge, abundant and international friend/acquaintanceship base. They did this it seemed obvious by asking or at least prompting their Facebook groups to like or respond to postings – it was so sadly blatant an effort to be like me with my many Facebook interactions and REAL affectionate received comments. Also are the posting of their limited excursion photos, along with their one or two singular charity/career events … oy veh – such a pathetic effort and so dam transparent that I/we almost felt sorry for them. I even experienced a wee bit of guilt on account of spawning such effort from these bottom dwellers as they struggled to show their activities and pose for me. That guilt quickly and readily dissipated as no one ever asked them nor ever cared about them except to sue and prosecute as law enforcement sees fit for their libel, slander, defamation, harassment, copyright/trademark infringement, voicemail/internet threats and now possible cyber crimes [for either and/or creating/re-posting fake lie filled websites and “hacking”]. One must ask – why bother – mine is such a different and thank G-d more REALLY special life than theirs … tragically my advisers suggest either possible mental health illness, simple mindedness or just the run of the mill loser/envy mentality as the answers. No one can be sure but you readers must surely agree it is weird and very unseemly that individuals we are so much different than – and yes I must say better than in every way – would take their limited energies and resources in jeopardy to challenge myself and my husband. Easy to laugh at these jokers but let me assure you we take the threats they present quite seriously. Why would we not be concerned – three of my dear gal pals – one a psychiatrist and two psychologist think these individuals might very well suffer from or have personality disorder issues or worse … additionally one of these characters son brags [we think DEFINITELY exaggerates or possibly is pretending]  to date Jews – at the very least interesting, as I am Jewish and my husband not [not yet anyway]. Another’s – shall we say – less than impressive vulgar daughter locked her Twitter page after my husband reproached this insignificant young woman for lies to spewed there about us … are you kidding me? a locked twitter page, lol.   One of my L.A. associates told us a miscreant put a reference to Pavlov [which someone of her limited education would not understand is really a reference to classical conditioning]  on her minimally read Facebook page – seriously – who is the responding canine in this tale – surely the miscreants I am sure you agree. See – OMG – right?

So in conclusion – an original is just that – original and thus unique. As the song I include here says, I am the one and only . Not for naught, I am definitely a unique original – as my “team” often expresses – these miscreant types can not ever be Tereza. I take that as a compliment but stress that others are the similarly unique and special but NOT the miscreants – they are common and tribe, troublesome and draining in that they fake life – never REALLY accomplishing much and even negating the small achievements they have managed by busying themselves with attempts to be me or someone else. Hopefully after lawsuits complete and law enforcement decides after investigation as to what charges – if any – are appropriate, these and other like minded types will never darken the REALLY wonderful landscape of my life in the future. To be 100% blunt – I doubt they will ever REALLY go away completely as my hubby believes the book, TV, movie, articles, etc. in the next year or two that show ours to be the REALLY successful and special life will [to paraphrase him] – drive them nearly mad with envy and confusion. Not to worry – we have a REALLY great publicist and amazing attorneys and the sweet internet ninja to thwart them and tame that beast. Stay tune my darling readers – this ride is not over yet!!!

P.S. I do not think they can mimic being an artist’s muse – here you see the original me, as I was painted and sketched by a dear gal pal artist – there are other paintings, photos, poems those equally talented have written about & dedicated to me that I will share in the future. I am humbled by the love, support and compliments that so many honor me with – thank you and know that I am deeply and sincerely grateful for each who rally to my side and lift me to such heights!

Note: The #30 trademark [as of 24 September 2012] I referenced above, that hubby & I now own is POTUS Tara Edwards-Saks™  … she is the main character in my 3 minute fiction entry to NPR [last Sunday, 23 September 2012] – we trademarked the name on account of an adviser suggesting I write a novel or series about this 1st Jewish Female U.S. President, which I am giving serious consideration.

P.S.S. THIS IS A SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TUTORIAL FOR THE LOSERS IN MICHIGAN, CHICAGO & PENNSYLVANIA WHO THINK THEY ARE CLEVER – AS SOMEONE INFORMED HUBBY & I, THEY [AGAIN] MISUNDERSTAND THE LAW – YOU CAN NOT JUST SAY SOMETHING IS TRADEMARKED IDIOTS – YOU NEED TO FILE APPLICATION & PAY HERE IN U.S., AS WELL AS EU & CANADA – AS WE HAD DONE FOR US – IF YOU WANT IT TO BE REAL.

Anna Karenina and Jay Gatsby Should Have Lived!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

True to my tenacious self, I have decided to rewrite the endings of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. I actually will not be the first nor the last to rethink these iconic literary characters. Why now? Well you see Hollywood is in a literature mode and as such will be releasing new versions of both the original movie versions [Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina and Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby video] based on these two books end 2012 and early 2013. My hope is people will actually be inspired to, as I have more than once, read the books. For me, it has been a long held feeling that both Anna and Jay got ripped off – killed off when each could have very well lived happily ever after. So I am not REALLY rewriting these grand tomes but only wanting to suggest an alternative and very importantly delineated view of these beloved characters – their life – the world that caused their demise.

Reality – truths – myths … all present narratives that demand action of us. Religions, countries, families each develop story lines that attempt to regulate the members of that group – forcing, despite contrary evidence, individuals to adhere to a program often detrimental to self and the group alike. Rituals are a must – moral codes an absolute requirement but never the dictate of others – especially never those wanting to control for self aggrandizing.  Leaders send citizens to battle, relatives subjugate members to roles, bosses use workers for selfish gain and each keeps someone, in some way from a better destiny.  Whose fault you might ask – everyone I answer. For do we all not participate – turning a blind eye and often agreeing with those prescribed dictates? To strike out – leave – change and demand rightful place in this world takes courage and strength. Even the very successful like our Gatsby fellow are defeated by illusory ideas of what should be their path and for dear Anna Karenina the role of a woman as defined by men and even supported by others of her own gender leads to life being intolerable.

A mistake in life – a singular wrong doing by someone is too frequently used by the lesser types among us as their only means to diminish those better than themselves and then attempt to falsely elevated their own sorry existence. The trouble lies in allowing yourself or any other REALLY good person to be ostracized by cowards – losers – miscreants and misanthropes. Without fail [trust me as I have the documents] those I and others are forced to deal with and who spew lies and misinformation as a route to their ill gotten gains, are themselves guilty of much larger and disgusting misdeeds – even crimes. Yes my darling readers, again, more that I can not fully discuss on account of ongoing (personal) litigation/lawsuits and obligations for my soon finally decided on publication date book, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life!. Suffice it to say, that as is far too often the case, those most loathsome are those most anxious to falsely accuse and to attempt harm by misplaced ideas about one better or more achieved or just more decent then they could ever hope to be. Were the literary imagined Jay Gatsby and Anna Karenina not better and more special than those in judgment of them? Of course, in many ways these two were of better quality than those around them. Neither – as none of us are if honest about things – were without sin but neither were these two as deceitful or without grace as their accusers. All through each book – both Tolstoy’s and Fitzgerald’s – we pray and nearly beg that the REAL truth will survive. The reader wants desperately for Jay and Anna to realize their own worth – rally, stay, be ok we shout in our minds as these two submit sadly to an undeserved fate. How then do we avoid the same sort of demise? Not easy but quite possible I assure you. I have written in other blog posts about my Jewish faith, my amazing REAL family and REAL friends, as well as my own discipline and determination – all that has made it possible for me to overcome the hateful attempts of others to diminish and deny me. Let us examine the how and why that Jay Gatsby, Anna Karenina and the rest of us can and should always use to survive the wrath of evil doer types – overcome those miscreants hell bent on our being quiet or G-d forbid, gone forever. Of course, Tolstoy and Fitzgerald would have written much different tales if their main character in these two books were able, as I have been, to thwart the miscreants – those so obsessed with telling untruths because of their own diminished life. Lawyers, a great publicist and very devoted family and friends are something I have that our Anna Karenina and Jay Gatsby did not. Even without the amazing support system I have been blessed with, one can defeat the jealous bottom dwellers by always denying them voice – never letting these misanthropes do as was done to our literary characters being discussed here – you must strike out through every means possible to stop the hater class … for myself/my husband, as you dear readers know by now, that is through the legal system and the pen – a tell all tome is REAL justice. Your enemy, as mine, will even deny reality and as many have suggested to me, that is usually because they have and do lie frequently about their own life … as my very wise late Mother often said, “A lie teller thinks everyone lies, a thief assumes all are thieves, a cheater believes everyone does the same and so on”. The tragedy for Anna Karenina and Jay Gatsby is that they never owned that knowledge – as such allowed the loathsome to define them. Never me and never should you.

God knows what you’ve been doing, everything you’ve been doing. You may fool me, but you can’t fool God!
The Great Gatsby, Chapter 8.

Poor darling Jay Gatsby – worked so dam hard to achieve financial success and status – get a foot hold into society and then to have it end suddenly at the hand of a loser. How different it all would have been if this up by the boot straps American fellow had realized the REAL dream was to be achieved in striking out – getting away from the poseurs. Isn’t our Gatsby like so many who think if only they had ____________, then they would be truly happy? But is that whatever only what others make us think is the thing to get happy through and not REALLY what will bring contentment? More troubling is those others want us to not be really successful – certainly never more than they are for that would highlight their own lesser status. I wrote a blog about denial – interviewed mental health professionals for that post who assured me those unable to fathom or reach certain levels of success in life often deny the reality of others who are REALLY achieved and accomplished in order to feel better about themselves. Seems unimportant except in Gatsby’s case it got him killed – proof that yes it does REALLY matter what others profess is the truth about you. Jay Gatsby was an original – authentic – the real deal as they say but he unfortunately let the miscreant types define and ultimately destroy him. You and I must never fall victim to the delusions of others – fight hard to have a REAL place in this world. Defeat the myth making – embrace the true glory of your narrative. Fitzgerald did not deny the great American dream but demonstrated through Gatsby that the dreamer is often sidetracked by those less worthy and so we of good intentions should head the warnings of too much fantasy determined by others with only selfish motivation or simply those so insignificant that world will never remember they even existed. I relate to the confusion and disbelief  Fitzgerald has us see in Jay Gatsby as he views the small mindedness and narrow life view of those around him … often when my dear husband hears myself, friends and colleagues discussing why the classless individuals he and I have been forced to deal with act, do or say something, he advises that people like myself and those I associate with need not waste our time on such concerns as we of  REAL value can never fathom the motives of those so distasteful. Tragically it is similar for Gatsby as he was immature in his understanding of others deficiencies – neither I nor you of REAL goodness should ever allow as he did, our faith in others to be the catalyst for our own defeat.

Be bad, but at least don’t be a liar, a deceiver!
― Leo Tolstoy,   Anna Karenina

Beautiful Anna Karenina had love bring her down or was it social mores that did our aristocratic lady in? Shame misplaced and set upon by others – again those unworthy of G-d’s grace daring to decide the value of another person. Tolstoy allows Anna to internalize the insults and hateful jealously of those defining status and worth in her world. Yes too often throughout history those good and special are subjugated to the slings and arrows of usurpers – neither REAL reason nor ultimate gain for the hater class in most circumstances but only their own ignorant and pathetic attempt at some unwarranted retribution. Shameful when others buy into the wrath of the devil’s spawn – oh my, hyperbole you are thinking on my part. No – just a seasoned recognition and deep believe from experience that evil truly does dwell among us in the form of what might appear an average person but is really a life draining and sinful creature. How else to explain the chatter that Tolstoy so brilliantly includes in his story from those around Anna Karenina – is it not the opposite of good when for purely hateful reasons others seek to destroy another of G-d’s children? Poor lady – if only Anna had someone to point out the loathsome position of those ostracizing her – if only, like myself, she had champions and defenders by her side. It never fails that the loudest critics are exactly those with the most to hide and the very people with most to be ashamed of in their own life. The deficiencies in both intelligence and judgment of those who oppose without REAL basis or facts must not be tolerated nor ignored. It is the self satisfied types that judged Anna so harshly who are themselves incapable of REAL development and REAL success. Sad but still dangerous that the least among us try to deny the best of us a rightful place in this world. Enemies strive to both physically and spiritually destroy the object of their envy and will use any faux means to achieve their nefarious goal – Tolstoy has Anna Karenina weaken in response to these evil doers – we of REALLY good character must never allow the same in our lives. All prejudice is exactly this form of insecurity disguised as righteous belief – simply a means to allow one insecure group to dominate another. No matter personal, community, national or other – no misplaced determination of ones value should define a life. Fight against what Anna Karenina succumbed to – do NOT ever allow your worth nor direction in life to be decided by the enemies of REAL truth.

So in my stories Jay Gatsby leaves Daisy to her vacuous existence – marries a REALLY great lady and sires REALLY great children … maybe runs for Congress some day. As for Anna Karenina, I have her living on into a grand dame of 90+ years, reunited with her child, having many grandchildren by her side and having great love again with a REALLY great man. Jay and Anna are gone except in the pages of these great works by Tolstoy and Fitzgerald but we dear blog readers can honor lessens they taught us by not letting your life story be a “if only” scenario – I surely will not let mine!!!

P.S. I was first inspired to “rewrite” the ending of Anna Karenina when my dear close friend & REALLY talented Pennsylvania hairdresser, Marina discussed the book with me one day. While she doing my nearly daily blow out we chatted about one of our shared pleasures – books & reading. I mentioned that a new movie version of Anna Karenina was soon to be released … there & then, we two decided too sad & too unfair that she came to an early demise. So I suggested an alternative or two with our heroine living happily ever after. Now that is a REALLY great hairdresser/gal pal … makes me look GREAT & makes me think GREAT thoughts. I adore you M.I.!!!

Note: Hopefully all of you who read & follow me are being entertained, inspired & a bit intrigued … certainly I have gotten wonderful & much appreciated feedback – especially interesting are the questions/suggestions as to who exactly are the often referred to miscreants & why the capitalized REAL/REALLY words. I & my support team like to think of it as a somewhat erudite version of “Where’s Waldo?” But seriously, ALL the REAL truth, about EVERYONE [documents & photos included], will DEFINITELY be understood once my  book is published. In the mean time – thank you, thank you, thank you – from the bottom of my REAL heart for the support, love and interest – each of you who subscribe, read & reach out to me bring happiness & comfort into my life. Shalom!

… oh yes, one more thank you – to all of you darlings who “warn” hubby & I, forward information/Facebook & Twitter & such about the enemies of truth – we REALLY love you!!!

You Know Your An Heiress If…

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Definition of an heiress is any female who inherits any sum or any item in an inheritance. End of story – period, but yes the assumed interpretation is of great wealth. For the ignorant [everyone surely knows who I am referring do by now] reading this –  read closely and pay attention and for G-d sake get a dictionary if need be. There are other acceptable heiress titles  … some Christian women described themselves as heiress to the L-rd’s kingdom, as in Romans 8:17  heirs and others are  heiress to a  legacy of some sort of talent or infamy or family activity – like the arts or politics. I am heir to over 5000 years of Judaism – the faith, the laws and Israel as my true ancestral homeland. For  members of a ruling noble class it is called heir/heiress apparent or presumptive. ALL are legal and legitimate. So here we are at one of my favorite topics – things legal … come along because you know that I have much to say on this subject!

When a female like myself inherits through the death of someone – husband, parents or others – any substantial sum or even a small amount of money – they are an heiress. I inherited money from both my deceased parents and again upon being widowed at nearly 21 years of marriage in 2000. De facto – that DEFINITELY qualified me LEGALLY as an heiress. Additionally, I LEGALLY became The Heiress™ AND HeiressMommy™ when myself and my brilliant entrepreneurial minded 2nd husband, Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon trademarked these terms 30 March 2011 . He and I jointly own over 20 trademarks – including The Heiress Goddesses™ as of 13 September 2011 and THE Heiress™ [different from & in addition to previous in that THE is capitalicized here] which was  trademarked for us on 24 July 2012. The last two trademarks that relate to this blog posting are HeiressMommy Fashion™ and HeiressMommy Style™, both these, among others, were trademarked on 29 July 2012. Now here we go – hold on you lie spewing possible soon to be charged with civil criminal offenses and definitely being suing for slander, libel, defamation, harassment & copyright infringement losers: this is  important to note because we have a so called “internet ninja” looking out for copyright and trademark infringements [as well as misrepresentations or lies] in order to know when anyone uses that which WE OWN. All were given proper notice via social media, etc. and so even though out of our largess there were one or two benign non threatening women using similar words that we decided FOR NOW to leave alone, anyone else – especially if using for nefarious or threatening reasons will be SUED FOR EVERYTHING THEY HAVE – no exception if we, our many lawyers, advisers or publicist feel it necessary. Again, here is a tutorial – especially for those idiot miscreants  I reference so often – when you file a trademark/copyright and when, as  we did, announce appropriately  it on social media sites, including facebook and twitter the following words are stated and included: “I/We will henceforth protect this/these trademarks vigorously.” For anyone thinking they can slide by and not be challenged by us – oh are you sorely mistaken. We will DEFINITELY VIGOROUSLY DEFEND OUR RIGHTS!!!

Nothing financial to date has been gained from our trademarks and copyrights, other than wonderful book deal contracts for both myself and my husband [yes, unlike certain individuals who call themselves writers/blog about working on their “book” – we REALLY have contracts for two blog essay end 2012 published books & of course my tome memoir being published end 2013 – written with a co-author & professional writer my publisher has assigned me]. The other possibilities these trademarks/book deals have now afforded us are the movie/TV deals we have recently began formal discussions about. As  we own the trademarks and copyrights, it is our singular legal right to use them in any way we see fit. Wow – I am obviously just a wee bit vitriolic about this topic – as are my lawyers, my dear publicist, my advisers, publisher [although they are loving recent controversy  – good for books sales they tell me], my financial planners, my extended family and many REAL  friends. Oh yes, law enforcement and government agencies and Courts also got very interested in the miscreants internet fraudulent faux writings, facebook postings and such – amazing isn’t it, how the proverbial tables turn in life and yes what they say about payback being a REAL bitch is happily true in this case. Funny thing is I nor my husband on account of a previous lesson learned [detailed in my 2013 book Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life!] ever do anything without consulting attorneys, publicist and other professional advisers first – it comes with the territory and we are thrilled to have so much professional support.  I know – again vague innuendos – sorry my darling followers and readers but mine is not a life to be shared freely until litigation complete this Fall, recent possible civil criminal charges against those often referenced evil doers fully investigated (ongoing now) and my 2013 book is published. Sadly, for some reason, my and my husband’s  perseverance and success obviously bothers the lesser class a great deal but husband and I will NEVER be deterred from our inherit rights and so here is a bit of history on the subject of heiress and heir status, as well as how, like we did, to fully legally disown and disinherit all unworthy types. Lets get started…

The definition of inheritance is varied. There are legal and financial terms to be considered –  that which is most usually referenced by the terminology. Also are religious and sociological aspects, in that different faiths consider one or another link to who shall inherit when and what … wealth,  title,  et al.  .  In our U.S. law one can legally fully disown and disinherit ALL relatives – the only exception is leaving child support for any minor/under 18 years of age “children” [yes darlings those are quotations as not all presumed children/those whose name may have you on birth certificate are really your progeny – another time on that and a bit detailed in my my 2013 book]. Adult children can fully, totally and completely be 100% legally disinherited. Any good attorney – as ours did – will suggest (although we told them first) to actually do a formal noted specific name by name [as we did with my husband’s previous spouse and her 3 children]  or/and relationship categories [as we did with siblings, their spouses, aunts, uncles, nieces & nephews & cousins, etc.] disinheritance in your will … it is not enough to leave someone out – assurance can only be complete by enumerating all you wish to inherit nothing. Even aged parents should be disinherited [we disinherited my husband’s 80+ year old father] on account of a possibility where you and your children perish and subsequently that older parent dies leaving your money to his or her heirs that you were not intending to receive anything. So it is that we detailed who – one another and OUR (together as couple) children ONLY are beneficiaries, followed by a few friends/extended family, our pet Labrador and a foundation we plan to set up in order to honor my parents – the Solomon Family. Not only did we detail who was to inherit but also exactly who was NOT – as such we decided to legally disown and disinherit ALL of my husband’s biological family. As you my supportive and very intuitive readers/followers are aware of – especially those who are also personal dear friends – my dear husband not only legally [January 2012] took my last name to honor my family, have our children be named that but also to further distance himself and protect us from most of his own biological relatives. Ours is certainly a horror story – the loathsome creatures were without redemption but even if not as gruesome as those we disinherited – everyone should consider a “technical” disinheritance of relatives so as to prevent any complications or challenges to wills. A great lesson can learned by reading the book (as I have) Mrs. Astor Regrets. This book and others teach that one must take care to be proactive in protecting your wealth (large or small) from usurpers – do this no matter what others may think when you take your rightful option to permanently eliminate “family” as your heirs.

Famous and infamous – the stories of those who are and others considered to be heiresses are plentiful. True life tales plus books, plays and movies tell the story of trails and tribulations that come along with such a denotation.There are the many heiresses of the Edith Wharton Era. These ladies were revisited this past January 2012 as New York celebrated the 150th birthday of this upper crust ultimate New York insider who chronicled by novel and such the goings on of heiress types. Some of the real women Edith Wharton described were actually heirs to large fortunes, while others perceived as such on account of familial relationships or proximity to the well heeled. Husband and I never need worry that the now legally disowned and disinherited “family” nor there friends that we are forced to deal with will ever be confused for our kind … there is no mistaking the lesser among us who not only have no substantial amounts of money but also no class and certainly no good breeding. No my darlings – while yes I am a snob about brains, class and definitely morals – I am usually not at all that way toward lesser wealth or poorly educated types [in fact some of the miscreant’s children actually have 4 year college degrees – no Harvard, Princeton or Yale involved however]. What I am noting here is that our peripherally formerly related persons and their friends are in no way able to pass for any where near the upper echelons of society. Even their budget travel photos and a faux Kentucky Derby [which I myself attended 2x, wearing couture designed hats] church going hat will not convince anyone class lives at their home. Yes this a hint – a pointed and directed remark but don’t you just love guessing of whom I write and are you not all anxious to read my 2013 book, watch and listen to TV/radio interviews where I tell ALL – name names, etc?

One of my favorite heiress women is the Mother of news man Anderson Cooper – who by the way, was considered someone I would be comfortable having interview me some time ago during a certain “situation” which will, of course – you all know what I am going to write here – be discussed in my 2013 book. Anyway, it is the amazing Gloria Vanderbilt of whom I write so fondly. A child born to a complicated background  – a woman that never let scandal or family predators take her off task toward a life of love, children and interesting careers. I, like her, will not live  a small life on account of lies, jealousy or others idea of what I deserve to be or have. I have it all – the husband, the family, friends, colleagues, interests, career, etc. but most important, as it is with Gloria, I have determination and a love of life. I pray that I too, like this refined cultured lady,  will live a long life filled with new adventures despite some sorrow and a few set backs along the journey.

No article would be complete on the subject of heiress without mentioning the often dubbed poor little rich girl, Barbara Hutton – Woolworth heir and among other things, married once to Cary Grant. Hers was a life terribly tragic in most arenas.  I am so blessed to have only minimally fallen victim to the sort of naivete this heiress did so many times – I have learned and grown, as well as been protected by devoted family and friends from repeating her similar mistakes of too much generosity and selflessness. Insecurity and doubt have never plagued me as it did her. Hutton seemed to never find REAL love nor absolute contentment. Unlike this heiress, I have found the most glorious REAL  love … married twice to good men who both adored me. This beautiful  Woolworth heir and I both married young the first time. The difference is my first marriage lasted nearly 21 years when I was widowed far too soon. Then magic happened – I remarried my soul mate only 3 years later. He is truly the most amazing, brilliant, moral, devoted to me above all else man, Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon. What more could any type of heiress ask for???

P.S. PLEASE know that my 2013 memoir is about my quite amazing and blessed, while complicated life. One publisher suggested my memoir will be Eat, Pray, Love meets Erin Brockovich. The miscreants, usurpers and evil doers referenced far more than I care to will only be a small part of my story – and even then only on account of the danger they present to myself, husband and children. Obviously the litigation/law suits and certainly any possible civil criminal proceedings against them must/will be written about in my book. Likewise, at the point my darling husband enters my life in 2003 – those he tragically knew/was related to and were so harmful and evil will be included [their REAL life issues and ALL our opinions and facts about them to be detailed] as they, not us, have inserted themselves into our life … not visa verse. We wish them no harm – only justice from the legal system & G-d as their due!!!

Our Modern Day Historical Love Story!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man. ”

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

–Genesis 2:23-24

When I die … hopefully as a very old, well coiffed, couture clothed,  hell on wheels tough ass broad – I will be giving G-d thanks for so many, many things. Mine has been [to say the least] an interesting life – full of more ups than downs. One of my own coined remarks concerning life difficulties is: I have had more than some but much less than most. The material things – the travel and events that others can only dream of experiencing, have been plentiful for me. More important is that I have been blessed with REAL friends and REAL love. I often tell my best friend, Mark K. and his wife [my REAL sister] Susan K., that even though we knew one another since college, it was not until I went through a horrible experience [all in my hopefully soon  book: Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life!] did I get to know – though this couple – the glory of deep, devoted and unwavering friendship. These are definitely my extended family and we share everything – now looking forward to the glory days with them and the others who believed and supportive me and my husband through it all and against all enemies. So here I am at the title of this blog post – about myself and my amazing husband, C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon – for ours is truly a modern day historical love story. Our tale easily comparable to those throughout time that are written about and repeated often. We were joined by G-d, sustained by love, completed by deeds and shared task and united in effort to thrive, produce, do good and fight ALL evil. Oh my, again such flowery and dramatic tonality in my writing – but trust me my darling readers and followers that you will agree here and definitely after reading my 2013 memoir – that my marriage is worthy candidate for a template of what a REAL relationship should be in this complicated world.

Adam & Eve were not what you think. While courting my darling husband sent me Mark Twain’s The Diaries Of Adam & Eve. The biblical idea of this first couple will never be the same as you read the nuances and often reflective thoughts of these two love birds. In fact, my hubby and I have decided to include quotes that the clever Twain has ascribed to Adam & Eve when we renew our wedding vows on the tenth anniversary in November 2013. Like these two, my husband and I sincerely believe G-d was our match maker – we were destined to be man and wife, to procreate and bond through eternal life. Other couples surely felt the same and others, also like us, unable – no matter the problems or difficulties – to be apart. We had the need and absolutely conviction that ours was a relationship meant to be in this world. Cleopatra & Antony could not deny their love even though an empire was at stake – these two thwarted enemy and friend alike to be together. In my life, that choice was also made – my husband and I denied all others  – those evil and determined to break us apart. Unlike Cleopatra & Antony, my husband and I will live [G-d willing] a long life together surrounded only by those loving, supportive and as devoted to us as we are to them.

Now here the comparison of my marriage to historical love stories gets really surreal – for you see my Hebrew name is Bathsheba, her beloved was David [my first husband’s name] and my last name, which is also the legal last name of my now husband and our children [made official in Court, January 2012] is Eliasz-SOLOMON. As my husband and I produce children, who are Solomons – it is as that other Bathsheba & [her husband] David did  in producing their wise King son Solomon. My husband Chester Michael Eliasz-SOLOMON is as wise and great as King David and I am sure our twin sons will be good Jewish exceptionally men, as their son Solomon was as a Jewish King. Yes, I am prejudice – my husband is the most amazing man in the world and I am grateful to be the mother of his ONLY children.

The most famous royal couple in history, known as the Catholic Monarchs, are Isabella & Ferdinand (video). I despise their reign of terror/their Holy War that forced Spanish Muslims and Jews to convert, leave or die – who even if converted were abused throughout Spain. However one can not help but be impressed by the joint solidarity of shared ruling these two had throughout their married life. My husband and I are equal partners as well – in all endeavors and are never anything other than united in effort to build our own little dynastic family life. We too will fight any usurper who threatened our union but unlike Isabella & Ferdinand we are liberal and fair unto all people unless evil and truly unworthy.For Chester Michael and myself it is a primary fact that no other person will ever divide us and as such we remain a force unconquerable. I suppose that the Spanish monarchs saw their joining similarly – sad that they could not have been as G-d demands toward ALL people of Spain during their reign. No denying that a united front allowed Isabella & Ferdinand to succeed beyond any other nation at that time – for my husband and I the same has been true as each day success seems to grow for us and we protect our family at all cost.

Queen Victoria & Prince Albert are a royal couple I much prefer to see my marriage to be like in how these two benefited others by their combined decisions. As my husband and I have designed our life to be not only beneficial to us and our children but our extended family, friends and community as well, so did Victoria & Albert for the British Empire. Like Victoria, I am in a powerful position these days and for the foreseeable future and it is my husband, like it was Albert, who guides me toward the right choices and directs my decisions on all matters. The young Victoria wrote in her dairy on 11February1840, the day after her wedding:

… how can I ever be thankful enough to have such a husband!

— I too give thanks to have such a husband as mine to grow and accomplish much in this life.

Another British royal love story to be noted as undeniably special is that of Prince of Wales & Wallis Simpson. To give up a kingdom, a throne and status unequal for a woman is to have demonstrated real love. Whatever my opinion of these two – the rumored Nazi sympathies and such – I relate easily as my husband legally disowned and fully legally disinherited ALL his relations in order to protect me and our children. My husband legally took my last name and had his/our children do the same as an honor to my parents and to further and permanently distance himself/us from those unseemly, threatening and not beneficial to our life plan. The difference between the Prince of Wales & his American wife, Wallis Simpson and us is that my husband gained a ruling place by his choice. Yes, my darling readers/followers I am again being vague and yes ALL/EVERYTHING will be detailed in my book: Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! – rest assured the outcome is magnificent for my marriage. When King Edward VIII abdicated in order to marry Wallis Simpson he stated it was because he could not do his job without her by his side and that is the same as what my husband tells me often when expressing that my presence is the how and why he can live happily. Reciprocation is as true – for I also can not live well or happily without my husband at my side. We get Edward & Wallis – giving it all up for love seems quite sane to us.

My husband’s writes of our love and of me in his blog Stanczyk – Internet Muse.  The Polish King Jan III Sobieski & his wife, Marysienka is who my husband most analogizes to our blessed and special marriage. Their very literate love letters during the King’s absence while waging military campaigns makes my husband reminisce about our love letters from a few days after we met until we married only three months later. This 17th century Polish royal couple lived a long life with many children – this is my Polish husband’s wish for us.

I relate my love story/marriage to famous currently talked about couples also – the Clintons, Obamas, movie and sports stars because like them my husband and I have been forced to tolerate and deal with miscreants, misanthropes, vandals, usurpers and lie spewing loathsome individuals – yes, those are apt descriptions that are shared by my friends, extended family, attorneys, advisers and even law enforcement and investigators helping us. Sounds complicated, doesn’t it? Again, you darling readers and followers must trust that ALL will be FULLY understandable after my 2013 book is published, TV, radio and magazine interviews out and lawsuits and charges that are filed written about in many venues – as with everything these days there will surely be much internet coverage as well.

Our modern day historical love story is a tale of salvation – we frequently discuss how we each resurrected the other from situations not conducive to our value or life destiny. The union of our two souls produces a strengthened singular oneness that is truly not to be defeated by any circumstance or usurper, no illness or strife nor happenstance could break the bond of my marriage. The biblical to death do us part is something my husband and I take seriously. Equal is let no man put asunder – and so it will remain until we pass from this world and join through an eternal life as one forever more!

P.S.  I fret about teasing my readers & followers – unable to share EVERYTHING on account of ongoing litigation and now/recent civil criminal charges that are being pursued against the often referenced miscreants plus book contractual obligations. Let me reassure everyone again – ALL will be completely detailed in my book and interviews and also trust me that you will be amazed and impressed about my historical love story … how we met, how we loved, how we persevered and how we triumphed beyond any one’s possible idea of what would be for us as a couple. It is a great example of G-d’s blessings, irony and REAL love in a REAL marriage [don’t you wonder about my constant REALS – more to come]!!!

MY Sui Generis Life!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

To define Sui Generis is a bit difficult as it foremost informs a uniqueness and a rare separate status or condition- a new genus developed or grown. Sounds a bit pompous when referring to one’s own life but there it is – mine has definitely been sui generis. Never to be confused with a life without strife or complication, I would describe being sui generis as very complex and also set apart from what most consider the average. As I reference in so many of my other blog posts – I give thanks to my parents, family, friends, colleagues, associates and often acquaintances for the love, guidance and support that somehow, along with G-d’s grace, always brings me to the most blessed points imaginable in life. No magic here … just G-d’s blessings, hard work and luck determined by an effort to always to do the right thing or at least being willing to admit/own up to my failings. Of course, the enemies of decency – the jealous and misinformed become terribly uncomfortable when someone, like myself, overcomes and achieves great things despite a few minor “set backs”. No my dear readers, I am not bragging but simply describing the sad state of life that many face when miscreants appear and are needed to be dealt with … whether by G-d’s wrath, the legal system and/or the testimony of those worthy against these who attempt  to destroy others directly or indirectly on account of their own need to feel adequate, when they are anything but worthy, lawful punishment must be sought. Sounds harsh and dramatic but those who seek to deny others are in essence denying G-d in that they refuse to recognize this world’s reality. We must never allow even the smallest destruction to interfere with the task of living or achieving. My Jewish faith wisely insist that to be an accomplished unique [sui generis] person is to fulfill destiny and to achieve all possible a necessity as G-d’s chosen people.

The psychiatric definition of delusional is multiple layered – for those I reference so often/those DEFINITELY NOT sui generis it is the insistence that despite evidence to the contrary they actually delude themselves in the false belief that they and only they are happy or decent or deserving of life blessings. Even for us who have had amazing educations, homes, travel, friends, etc. – a life by all standards elite and some would say superior – to deny that other more simple lived folks are happy, would be in fact delusional. Then why one must ask, do the lesser among us [the so called average people], feel the need to deny reality – to thwart others who are so much more successful [in varied ways] then they could ever hope to be? The answer is a dangerous sociological problem that proliferates among miscreant types. The danger lies in their effort to dismiss as real those more or even differently successful then themselves … some professionals [therapist] think it is that REAL achievements are so beyond these folks understanding, that the only option is denial. Having as I and my husband do, a sui generis life, leaves no option but to be vigilant and exacting in protecting our world against such individuals. Again, as in other blogs, I must leave ALL the details until later on account of ongoing litigation, recent possible criminal charges against certain people due to threats and of course my book obligations due to 2013 publication of  Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life!

There are financial aspects to a sui generis life as well. For myself and my husband it has resulted from odd occurrences [more in my book] that allowed us to take full and conscious advantage of opportunities – in other words, we used situations that were both good and bad to seize a unique path toward success. The legal definition and application of sui generis applies for us because we own over twenty trademarks, have applied for various patents (pending) and are in legal process of getting a few copyrights. Trademark infringement law is very clear – no one can ever use our own trademarks for financial or other gains. Neither can our trademarked names [yes, we were able to trademark Eliasz-Solomon™ & HeiressMommy™ among others] to slander, libel, defame or harass by repeating or posting or writing those words without our permission.  Indeed, this is another one of my not so vague hints – earlier this week our attorneys, publicist office, Court, law enforcement, security advisers and others began an investigation into both civil and criminal lawsuits/charges against some assumed and some still being sought evil doers. NO ONE – no matter income or background, etc. should ever allow their own sui generis life to be defiled by miscreants. Of course, sadly not everyone has the means or connections or determination that my husband and I have to proceed against enemies. None the less, everyone should [always 100% legally] be vigilant against those who want to deny or destroy.

Now please understand that being a sui generis life is not always easy but it certainly is worth it. One of my book publishers has often said that unlike most life journey clients they co-author with, their dealing with me is not a  matter of “does she have any really interesting things to tell us” but more “enough already”  because they feel that my life has possibly TOO MANY amazing twists and turns to narrow it down to a reasonably sized book. Oh well, a large tome or multiple volume effort will have to be the perfect option because I have never and will never turn way from grandeur, unique choices or opportunities others might consider to be not quite rational. Happily, I married a great guy who feels the same way … onward and DEFINITELY upward for the sui generis ELIASZ-SOLOMON FAMILY !!!

Why I Love ALL Things Ritz … NOT Talking Crackers Here!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Coco Chanel, Proust, Hemingway, Cole Porter, the Fitzgeralds, Sophia Loren, Princess Diana and ME. All of us adored the Hotel Ritz Paris for one or another reasons  – I also have known and loved The Ritz Carlton Hotels and more recently their Residences. The cracker – now that is a no no in my world and I assure you that unlike Harrison Ford’s amnesia stricken character in the 1991 movie Regarding Henry, I will NEVER ever confuse the Ritz Cracker with the Ritz-Carlton.  Let us not digress from the story of excellence and history … for the well heeled, the infamous and the famous, as well as the servers and staff whose life was changed by staying or working at The Ritz. You might be humming the old song “Puttin’ On The Ritz” as you read this – yes it was inspired by the Ritz, written and published by Irving Berlin  in 1929. So my darling readers,  hum away as I tempt you to save enough as to be able to plan being a guest at the reopening in Paris 2014 of this grandest hotel.

A recent Vanity Fair article paid homage to the Paris Ritz as it closes for a two year renovation this Summer on 31July2012. Not just a hotel but home to many throughout its history – from its opening 1898, through wars and the 1929 Depression, the Paris Ritz has remained a success and a must go to destination point for a wide variety of individuals. Started by a less than wealthy Cesar Ritz – this self  taught original owner of the Paris Ritz, his wife Madame Ritz and later son instituted the prototype for class in hotels everywhere. Yes, I have been there more than once when visiting France and I lived for a while in a Stateside East Coast Ritz-Carlton Penthouse after being widowed in 2001 [as with so much else, I must save ALL the details for my book: Heiress Mommy …  A Modern Super Woman Life!]. Everything they advertise is 100% true – the service, concern for privacy, the food, the ambiance is special and even though there are so many other fine hotels and resorts that I have visited and more I and my husband of nearly nine years, Chester Micahel Eliasz-Solomon and our children are planning to visit – the Ritz remains one of a kind in my heart. Ernest Hemingway once wrote that when he dreams of an afterlife in heaven, it takes place at the Paris Ritz [I would love that too – but for me, as a Jewish Princess, heaven’s afterlife would be at the new Ritz Residences in Herzliya, Israel]. Proust had his chauffeur, Odilon, fetch his favorite Paris Ritz Bar beer to consume on his death bed. Love affairs have been consummated and one can assume babies conceived in the glorious well appointed Paris Ritz suites.

Needless to say, those who so love the Paris Ritz are a bit, shall we say nerveux et anxieux about this latest restoration, after the last being such a success 33 years ago. The current makeover is being done by French architect and designer Thierry Despont – a person of obvious talent and probably great confidence, as anyone who has ever visited France knows that the dear French can be [to say the least] opinionated. Unlike many luxury hotels, Ritz everywhere seem more like a club or home [for me it actually was for nearly one year] – there is an ease and security and lack of the carnival atmosphere that some other glamorous hotels seem to include. The most recent Ritz incarnation is its Luxury Condominium Residences – so one is owning a Ritz home, where they have managed to gleam the hotel stay ease into these apartments/condominiums … the best of both home ownership and vacation is the result.

There is much to be learned from the Ritz hotel policy … elegance, graciousness, respect, duty, generosity, courtesy and an understated presentation that welcomes all – no matter status or circumstance. Of course, I would be somewhat less than truthful if I personally did not admit that for myself one of the perks of staying at any Ritz property is that it assures me the company of like minded individuals . That does not necessarily [while granted a stay at the Ritz can be expensive] mean wealthy or elite but for the most part it does mean well mannered and dignified.

The Paris Ritz long and illustrious history is both interesting and enlightening – a fun read and a suggestive template for others, whether professional or personal to make hospitality no matter location a must do in life!!!

P.S. This blog’s picture is of one of MY own many Ritz Hotel bedroom slippers from my living and staying there so often and that is MY Ritz Penthouse [gift from management] key tag in the picture … Obviously  no longer with an active entry device attached but there will be more for myself and my growing family because we do love puttin’ on the Ritz!!!

Le Petit Trianon And Why Architecture DOES Matter!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Un endroit tres special … toi seul –  For Queen Marie Antoinette that was Le Petit Trianon and for others no more than a small room or alcove. No matter the style, location or size a special place that one can call their own seems as important to happiness as love. It seems that the French Queen was in that sense very much the same as anyone else in needing and seeking that sort of  joy and security. In that pursuit she embraced and redesigned extensively the Versailles addition that was originally designed as a gift for Louis XV’s maitresse-en-titre, Madame de Pompadour, who died before its completion and so it was subsequently given to her successor, the most famous French mistress, Madame du Barry. It was the  following French King, Louis XVI who gave Le Petit Trianon to his teenage Queen whose legacy has been defined by both truths and misrepresentations. In fact, Le Petit Trianon was criticized by her French peers as being too foreign – often being called “Little Vienna” or “Little Schonbrunn” – a reference to her powerful mother, the only female ruler of the Hapsburg dynasty, Maria Theresia‘s palace – where Marie Antoinette herself was born. As history informs us, Marie Antoinette was both loved and despised during her life – thus finding both a place for celebration and solace in her beloved  Petit Trianon. [By the way, during my visits to France I visited all of Versailles – including Petit Trianon and more … I will detail this and more of my travels, including photos,  in upcoming blog posts and my now REALLY soon book: Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life!].  There are American Castles – places of grandeur designed as testimony to great wealth achieved mostly during America’s Gilded Age – I have visited many, including Newport’s famed The Breakers and Vizcaya in Miami. For myself, it began with my own childhood playroom and later a study that was my singular separate space and then of course as an adult my own homes provided more special areas I considered important – a gym, a garden or private dressing area. My husband and I recently have become able to look forward to being multi residential  – both of us are thrilled and full of wonderful anticipation at the prospect of working with architects and designers to create special unique spaces for each of us and our children. In each life – no matter where in this world – there is a necessitous impetus to create or find that area where comfort,  security and peace can be experienced. The task at hand has been and is ever more to make public and private places that every citizen has access to in order to achieve a balanced life to whatever extent possible.

I often reference all my parents taught and gave me in my blog posts – again, I must acknowledge their teaching that one should take full advantage of public spaces – making an effort to see and experience museums, parks, public libraries and all venues available wherever one lives or visits. I too want my children to make a conscious effort to seek out places of both grandeur and simplicity. For some there is no personal directive toward this lesson but it none the less should be, if not intrinsically known, then taught via public service outreach and/or through education [in schools, etc.]. We must provide public spaces – which serve as social gathering places. Throughout history into current modernity there have been parks, town centers and squares that afforded populations a place to congregate and more – often serving as markets, meeting venues and places of both worship and justice [or lack there of] and  punishment. The suburbs, unlike cities have not provided many gathering public or communal spaces … grant it quite a few are near parks but the very act of needing to drive for access denies the basic intent – that is to dwell freely in a shared area with neighbors or simply to easily seek solitary refuge. Rural areas provide, while not as plentiful as cities, meeting places on account of the basic need to join with others in common spaces – living far apart almost demands a town hall, a fairground or place of worship to gather. Of course, city, suburb or farm/ranch the new town square is social media – while to some extent a place of shared experience or reprieve from others, the internet is not architecture and therefore provides nothing to soothe the soul or attend to our other senses. Of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention that my husband and I take great advantage of the internet in pursuit of homes, vacations, design, etc. – there is without a doubt the most amazing access to all the world’s beauty, art and architecture via the internet. The problem lies in that being the only and singular outlet for some – whether by choice or circumstance. To never walk through a museum, sit in a public park, stroll around a town square or trek through a national preserve is to be denied a human basic experience – the outdoors and the interior places created by joined human effort are equally important venues that are almost a biological imperative to sustain life. We have seen people flock to common spaces for triumph celebrations like national holidays and also to share in tragedies like 9/11 – this need appears to be intrinsic and almost part of our DNA. Vigilance must be maintained to how and why and where architecture can make a difference in all lives.

For some time it has been an accepted fact that hospital design affects a patient’s health – not just the obvious cleanliness and well placed equipment/safety consideration but also the colors, furniture styles and art placement can contribute to or detract from the overall outcome of an individual’s hospital stay. There are also the staff and families and friends visiting that can benefit from the architecture of a medical center. Another important  architecture issue is schools – studies have shown that learning is more easily done in well designed areas and less strife and disruption among students is noted when a school is not only efficiently laid out but is attractive and in tune with all the senses. Teachers are equally affected and have expressed an ability to demonstrate more patience and energy in their dealings with students when the building/their work place is attractive and healthy.  Sadly, public schools are falling victim, like most municipality financed venues, to budget cuts these days – penny wise and dollar foolish for sure as how and where our children learn is paramount to a successful future., Why should only those of us whose children can financially afford private school have a learning atmosphere that promotes achievement? Yes, it is true – as I am so often reminded by skeptics – that in the “old days” many of our most prominent U.S. and world citizens schooled in less than attractive buildings [to say the least]. As my wise Mother was fond of stating – there were no really “good old days” just old days gone by … those much championed and incorrectly remembered halcyon days were also full of segregated and bland places of public education. Granted some students rose above and achieved greatness – most probably [as is often cited in memoirs and biographies] on account of family, clergy or a special teacher or maybe even something uniquely internal gave that person an advantage despite the surroundings where they went to school. Today is different and it is imperative that everything possible be done to architecturally design places of learning that are stimulating, healthy and attractive.

Major cities in the Unites States and other countries are now creating well designed and attractive affordable public and subsidized housing  … major architects are getting involved in the effort to create better and healthy single living spaces for the financial disadvantaged citizenry among us. One plan has produced integrated and various  level income housing communities, while other initiatives have created buildings with the single goal of affordable small but well designed living units … all geared toward a better quality of life. The outcome has demonstrated not only a better result for inhabitants of these well designed  low income units but for the community in general –  legal, medical and sociology experts have studied and agreed that living in a better environment produces individuals more physically and mentally healthy and there is decreased crime and as such less cost/expense to others. Even public transportation throughout the world has been addressed by architects – the stations are now multiple purposed in many places, offering amenities and services, as well as a safer environment. There really is no part of human existence that can not be made better by design and that is why architecture really DOES matter – in many ways and for many reasons!!!

P.S. A previous blog about our Labarador, Princess Java Argus surely expressed how much we consider her family – as such the plan for our new residence is that she & the second Labrador we are planning to add to the Eliasz-Solomon family, Princess Kava Pompeii have their own separate home [not dog house] with full amenities for times when parties or chaos make it uncomfortable or unsafe for pooches to be in main house …so, it goes without saying, we take architecture seriously!!!

Blogging, IP and Copyright Laws …Or Why Imitation is NOT Always Flattery!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

The world of law and litigation is catching up with social media – old and new laws are helping to keep the intellectual property of those of us who are producing original ideas and work safe from thieves and usurpers. As you read my blog and upcoming books, there is an obvious concern and determination to make sure that neither I nor anyone else of good intention gets ripped off. Thank G-d even nuanced or the mere suggestion of reproducing or imitating someone’s [my or my husband or you] work is subject to legal action and lawsuits. As I have written before …I LOVE jurist prudence!!!

Since 2011 myself and my husband, C.Michael Eliasz-Solomon, have made it our business to establish/own over thirty different trademarks – some to secure our rights from the evil doers and miscreants you have read about before in my blog posts [more in my soon book: Heiress Mommy …A Modern Super Woman Life!]. The other, less personal reason we trademarked, is to develop products and business venues, as well as create employment opportunities for others. This was an easy decision – and of course very effective because if anyone uses [intentionally or otherwise] any of our trademarked names, they will/can be sued immediately. More subtle situations are when [mostly intentional] someone mimics or piggy backs our work – imitating to some degree our style. No matter how minimal or indirect  the perceived similarity is – it can not and will not be tolerated as this diminishes my/our image and product. Oh my, here I go again being vague – those of you who know me and/or follow me must surely be aware of the reference to the who we are specifically watchful of  but ongoing litigation and my book obligations still keep me from being more direct just now. Suffice it to say the usual suspects are being  “outed” and it is being dealt with sufficiently.

A very important topic for my own current work is blogging and intellectual property/copyright laws. Facts can be reproduced, quoting is acceptable but expressions and style are copyrighted and are NOT acceptable  under the fair use doctrine. Timing is also an issue …if one only begins a particular format, wordage, set up, etc. after or in tandem with another person’s work – especially if there is any interpersonal connection – that is subject to a cease and desist or/and possible lawsuit. It is obvious when someone is imitating or being influenced to an extent where actual plagiarism is occurring and equally illegal is when a usurper either consciously or unconsciously is attempting to benefit from a similar style or name recognition. I will be damned if all my husband and I have worked for – struggled to create and protect, will be used or benefited from by our enemies – no one among you should accept anything similar no matter how insignificant it may seem. Just this week we trademarked our unique [only we two and our children and AKC registered Labrador] legal last name of Eliasz-Solomon because name recognition is important …we insist and have advisers to make sure that no one ever takes advantage of any connection to our name for profit. Some of you already are aware of the fact that my husband and I did extensive legal disowning and disinheritance of  what were previously considered “family” members – trust me [more in my book] when I say extensive, that is what I mean. Why after all that expense and effort, would we allow anyone to use even the slightest form of imitation or connection to us for their own benefit. Never for us means never …as you have read in my blogs before – I LOVE being a 1% type job creator for lawyers and one of my favorite motto directives is SUE THE BASTARDS. All of you should feel the same way …not only as individuals but as a society because cheap knock offs are stealing …stealing jobs, money and reputations and make no mistake intellectual property theft is also stealing.

The good and the bad of me are REAL …all of who I am past, present and future can only be authenticated by myself and those who really know the truth [husband, family, friends, advisers and colleagues]. Just like a REAL Prada, a REAL Louis Vuitton, a REAL Hermes – I am the ONLY REAL Tereza D. Eliasz-Solomon and Heiress Mommy and therefore ONLY I can share the whole story in my book: Heiress Mommy …A Modern Super Woman Life!. A similar cautionary reference is that any blogger with any similar name or style who however subtle might appear to be like me or know me or my husband is only a cheap imitation and possible copyright infringer. Why settle for less, when you can read the best – me my darling blog followers. Stay tune – this ride is getting really interesting and the best is definitely yet to come!!!

P.S.  Beyonce and I share two legal similarities …the first I can not discuss yet because of that ongoing litigation I keep referencing and lawsuits being filed against those who defamed, slandered and are guilty of libel against us but the second is we and our husband’s are smart business people – realizing the necessity of trademarking names. Mr. & Mrs. Shawn Corey Carter trademarked their sweet baby girls name Blue Ivy shortly after her birth …Mazel Tov Beyonce & Jay-Z!!!
